Reconstruire le Chemin des Dames (1919-1939)

Abstract : The global scale of the destructions on the “Chemin des Dames” (Aisne) is unmistakably unprecedented after the First World war and justifies a full study on its reconstruction. The management and the digestion of "the event ruins" and there even the rural Reconstruction of this country seem strongly contrasted. The bureaucratic machine according to war digests rather well all the particular cases thanks to its forms and meets the needs the most pressing confirming a trend to a natural change of the State on the “Chemin des Dames”. Nevertheless, the disparities remain very present confirming what some people call from 1921 "The scandal of the released regions". This interaction of the cultures, the rights, the techniques; this subtle mixture of tradition and modernism, durability and transformation; this confrontation in a middle, is going to be born a society of the ruins this thesis of which tries to paint a portrait.
